Does the YS-90DX use a the Sea & Sea connector on the strobe or is it hard wired? Can or do they supply a Nikonos to Sea & Sea strobe sync cord?

As far as I am aware the YS-60 is the only Sea & Sea strobe with a fixed cord.

All others, including 90DX, can have a nikonos or motormarine synch cable. At additional expense obviously.

Yep, you get a "choice" of two sync cords. I use the Nikonos-to-Sea and Sea cord.

I then hook that up to my Ikelite "TEE" connector so after all that I go Ikelite-Tee-YS90DX.


That's the sea and sea cord on the right.
